a president the world could love.

busy getting frustrated with all this absurd propaganda implying that obama is a)a muslim and/or b)a terrorist ("terrorist fist jab"!?!), it's easy to lose track of the other [reality-based] side of that coin: that electing a man with a muslim name as US president could surely lessen anti-american sentiment in the muslim world. bush era jingoism has given terrorist an endless supply of recruitment fodder. what an olive branch to the moderate majority of muslims, that the US would elect someone with the middle name "hussein" as president. sadly obama's name (and worldly upbringing) are viewed by a big part of the populace as a fatal flaw, or at least an electoral weakness. but, in the spirit of the obama campaign, i remain hopeful.

also my aunt, who is retired foreign service and lives half the year in sicily, recently wrote me an email that ended as follows:

"Keep our boy Obama on the right track until we get back. They are going crazy in Europe (and Asia and Africa) for him."

Note also the recent Fox graphic (not stated verbally but shown on the screen) referring to Obama's wife as "Obama's Baby Mama."
